THE LOST PRINCE tells the story of Djibi; everything in his life revolves around his beloved 7-year-old daughter Sofia. This devoted single Father never misses their cherished ritual of bedtime stories. Every night as Sofia falls asleep, her father takes her into "Storyland", a fantasy film studio where their extraordinary fairytale adventures come to life starring Djibi in the lead role as the heroic Prince Charming. Five years later and nearly a teenager, Sofia starts to grow out of her father’s stories and instead makes up tales of her own with Djibi no longer the heroic lead. As his roles in both the real world and in “Storyland” begin to change, Djibi must find a way to forever remain the hero of his daughter's life, imagination and stories.
